Georgia Tech Earth And Atmospheric Sciences is running a monthly Science Showcase at the Ponce City Farmers Market. Stop by the first Tuesday of each month to learn more about exciting topics like coral reefs, light pollution, and DIY meteorology kits. Every session will have an activity just for kids, with a special sticker badge for completing it. Are you ready to be a Hazard Hero, a Climate Ranger, and a Dark Skies Avenger?!  This week, learn about dark skies protection — Urbanization and light pollution contribute to a loss of ‘dark skies’. This makes it hard to see the stars, hard for nocturnal animals to hunt and navigate, and disrupts the natural cycles of non-nocturnal animals. We’ll discuss changes that can be made at home and at a municipal level … and also teach the basics of star-gazing!
